Are you tired of making dinner? Right now we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic so we’ve been home for dinner every night because we aren’t doing takeout and there is no going out to restaurants.
Even when life is more normal though I’m not a huge fan of cooking but I’m lucky to have a teenage daughter who does like to cook.
We got an instantpot a few months ago and I have to say I just love having one. It’s even easy enough that I don’t mind making dinner as much. I am even a bigger fan of using the Instantpot than I am of my slow cooker which I also love.
There are still so many ideas I want to try with the Instantpot because there are just so many things you can make and it was such a good investment because it’s so versatile. There are so many instantpot ideas for dinner to give a try.
